Nope :(   This one was meant to be a no-gfx server, I guess.  Even the
hostname on the installed Irix 6.2 is "webserver."

The hdd sleds all have external pushbutton-selectable IDs.  Not sure
about the tape drive.  My next step is to take one of the non-boot

in there.  I want to see what's on these drives!
